Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, the managing and operating contractor at the Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site near Aiken, S.C., was recognized by the American Heart Association for its commitments to employee health and well-being. The company received a gold level, as measured by the association’s 2022 Workforce Well-being Scorecard.

“SRNS prioritizes the physical and mental safety of each employee,” said Sean Alford, the company’s executive vice president and chief administrative officer. “Our recent participation in this program and recognition of gold status validates this commitment and we are thankful.”

A partnership of Fluor, Newport News Nuclear, and Honeywell, SRNS employs about 6,000 people.

The scorecard: The AHA Workforce Well-being Scorecard evaluates factors such as mental health policies, organizational well-being strategies to address burnout, health equity measures, and employee financial resources to provide a comprehensive assessment of an organization’s culture of health. In 2022, there were 381 organizations that completed the scorecard, all of which were recognized with an achievement level of platinum (9 percent), gold (45 percent), silver (32 percent), bronze (9 percent) or completer (5 percent).

First launched in 2016, the scorecard was refreshed in 2022 to place a renewed focus on health equity and comprehensive organizational well-being. The free, web-based tool allows employers to regularly evaluate their health and well-being progress, identify areas of opportunity, and see how their results stack up against their peers.
